Honda Accord Horsepower and Torque

The Honda Accord offers two engine options to make certain every type of driver is perfectly catered for:

  • 1.5-Liter VTEC® Turbocharged 4-Cylinder: Makes up to 192 hp and 192 lb-ft of torque.
  • 2.0-Liter VTEC® Turbocharged 4-Cylinder: Makes up to 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.

Even the base engine was tested by edmunds.com for an impressive 0-60 mph time of 8 seconds, and all models feature Active Noise Cancellation™ (ANC) to ensure strong engine specs aren’t accompanied by deafening engine noise.

Honda Accord Fuel Economy

The Honda Accord has developed a reputation for providing tempting mileage ratings despite its engaging performance. All models feature an Eco Assist™ System that displays how your driving behavior impacts fuel consumption. Over time, you’ll coach yourself into a more efficient driving style.

It’s a reputation the latest model lives up to thanks to the following cutting-edge transmission systems:

  • 6-Speed Manual Transmission (6MT): Makes up to an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway* while delivering the direct control still sought by driving purists.
  • Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode: Delivers up to an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway*, plus seamless shifting.
  • 10-Speed Automatic Transmission (10AT) with Shift-By-Wire (SWB) and Paddle Shifters: Makes up to an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway* for models fitted with the 2.0L engine.

    Honda Accord Performance Features

    The Honda Accord is built around a next-generation powertrain, but it also uses a wide selection of sophisticated features to ensure that every turn of the road and touch of the gas pedal brings performance above and beyond conventional expectations. The available Adaptive Damper System irons out the road and provides track-like agility.

    Just a few performance features include:

    • Wheel Resonator: Nothing takes the enjoyment out of highway driving like wheel noise, so Honda has fitted the latest Accord with noise-reducing wheels for a quiet interior.
    • MacPherson Strut Front Suspension/Multi-Link Rear Suspension: Whether tackling unpaved roads or tight curves, sophisticated Accord suspension keeps your ride serenely comfortable.
    • Stabilizer Bar (Front/Rear): Fitted across the vehicle at front and back, stabilizer bars help control body roll as you head through corners.
    • Power-Assisted Ventilated Front Disc: Power-assisted brakes save you putting your foot down hard, and ventilation provides a superior ability to dissipate heat for long-lasting performance.


    Honda Accord Active Safety Features

    It’s easy to concentrate solely on engine, transmission, and performance features when looking at how the Honda Accord handles, but that’s only part of what makes its ride a cut above. You’ll also find a range of active safety features that refine performance to keep you fully under command of the vehicle through every twist and turn.

    Select active safety features include:

    • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Adjusts driving dynamics based on numerous pieces of data to ensure you remain in full control at all times.
    • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): When you press down the brake pedal, braking force is distributed intelligently between all four wheels.
  • Brake Assist: The Honda Accord can sense an emergency braking situation and provide added forced for surer stopping power.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Having too much or too little pressure in your tires can impact performance, so the TPMS lets you know when they require attention.
